University Policies to Recommend for Approval
- CWUP 2-30-140 Ombudsperson - Sherer Holter
The Ombudsperson policy was updated to clarify the ombudsperson's role here at CWU. UPAC members endorsed the changes to CWUP 2-30-140.
- CWUP 2-35-070 Discrimination Complaint & Resolution Policy - Sherer Holter
Restructuring has integrated faculty relations and the office for equal opportunity into the human resources organization. The policy change corrects the title of a process and makes it clear where complaints and/or complainants will be referred. UPAC members endorsed the changes to CWUP 2-35-070.
- CWUP 2-50-040 Facilities Use - Sherer Holter
The Facilities Use policy was updated essentially to reference the WAC that the policy is based on. UPAC members endorsed the changes to CWUP 2-50-040.
University Procedures Reviewed
- CWUR 1-30-050 Discrimination Complaint & Resolution Procedure - Sherer Holter
The Discrimination Complaint & Resolution Procedure supports the policy. Changes were made to clearly show that restructuring has integrated faculty relations and the office of equal opportunity into the human resources organization. The procedure also ensures that the complainant and the respondent received copies of the investigative reports, ensures that timelines are clear and concise, and updates references and conformation with style standards. UPAC members endorsed the changes to CWUR 1-30-050.
- CWUR 1-55-010 Ombudsperson (NEW) - Sherer Holter
The Ombudsperson procedures are new procedures to accompany the policy. These procedures will assist faculty, staff and students in identifying the types of issues handled by the ombudsperson and what one can expect in terms of professional behavior by the ombudsperson. Contact information is also provided.
- CWUR 3-40-380 Facilities Use Procedures - Sherer Holter
The Facilities Use procedure has had many changes and has been discussed and under review for over a year. There were several redundancies in the procedure so items were reorganized. The main piece that has caused many discussions is the cost for rental of our spaces. Marji Morgan raised some concerns regarding Theatre Arts space, mainly McConnell. She suggested getting Scott Robinson and Todd Shiver into these discussions before this procedure is endorsed and passed. Margaret Badgley stated that we should add a section to this procedure that deals with dedicated space at the University Centers. Jim Huckabay added that making this procedure more clear is very important. It is definitely a stumbling block between campus and the Ellensburg community. Discussions will continue on this procedure.
- CWUR 3-50-205 Travel Authorization - Sherer Holter
The Travel Authorization procedure was updated to clean up language regarding provisions and lower approval levels. UPAC members endorsed the changes to CWUR 3-50-205.
